happy New Year, typophiles!
I am glad to present a new Osnova family, sans serif workhorse.
Osnova supports slavic Cyrillic (belarusian, bulgarian, macedonian, russian, serbian and ukrainian), Latin for western, baltic, central and eastern european languages, and also monotonic Greek codepages.
the font has six weights from thin to heavy with small caps, old style and tabular figures, some ligatures, alternatives and letter variations for three alphabets. italics preserves roman glyph shapes.
some of features are separated for using eg. in office software.
Osnova will be suited for both display and text use, for corporate identity and signage as well as for publishing and editorial design, and even for navigation design.
the typeface is named after the first ukrainian cultural magazine Osnova (1861–1862).
